Many events and circumstances arise that beckon us to help people and we should not hesitate to reach out whenever possible. Sadly, the response to offer support often falters when faced with the inconvenience of a situation or some self-inhibition. Instead of making excuses or pointing fingers we should seek well-founded mutual solutions.
Why lend a hand, anyway? Not because it feels good or that we too might need help someday or even because it seems like the right thing to do. We ought to help someone simply because he or she needs help. Everyone deserves the dignity of being human, always and especially during a time of need; to be valued as a person regardless of the conditions or challenges or status in society.
This subtle difference in viewpoint yields significant difference in thinking and action. Only then can we really make our world a better place.
